"People will wonder about what you are doing. You have to explain about the thread."
What We Believe About Travel
Tour Leader and Globetrotter Fred Sigman
Fred is an art history professor, visual artist and documentary filmmaker. He began traveling at the age of ten when his mother moved him and his siblings from their home in Asheville, North Carolina and embarked on an extended tour through Europe that lasted four years.
Travelers have accompanied Fred as a part of a specially designed adventure to Peru, Thailand, Cambodia, China and France. He wants to be more of a travel companion than a tour guide.
When living in Baja California, Mexico, Fred introduced photographers and writers to the landscapes of the 18th century mission churches. As a professor at the University of Nevada, he took anthropology and art students around the Southwest to study ancient cultures and France to study 19th century art and landscapes.
He believes in slow travel, not turning every place or people into a photo-op, connecting with local culture and looking for the best place to have a sundowner.

Fred with his Myanmar handler Kya'swe
Getting to know the people and places is more gratifying than spending time getting
to places and checking into hotels.
My personal experience?
The itineraries I create come from my own years of traveling to or living in the places we visit.
What are you seeking?
All tours can be personally tailored for your interests and budget (backpacker to the royal treatment).
How can you prepare for your journey?
When you sign up, you are automatically enrolled for free
in the WanderSight eLearning course that covers your destination.
